Dini Campbell Tjampitjinpa "Tingari Cycle"
Size: 183 x 90 cms Code: DC96481004, Year: 1998 Acrylic on Linen Canvas
Born in the early ’40s in Pintupi country west of Kiwirrkura, across the WA border near Jupiter Well. He grew up in the bush with his family, and had already been initiated when the group walked into the Catholic mission settlement of Balgo in the late ’50s. While living at Balgo, Dini did stock work and wood carting. When visiting relatives in Papunya, he observed the old men painting. During one of these visits in 1981, Dini had his first experience of painting on canvas as one of the team of men who assisted Uta Uta Tjangala on the monumental canvas depicting events at the site of Yumari now in the collection of the National Museum of Australia.
